The Bunkie by Evan Bare, a designer based in Ontario, Canada, is a small sleeping cabin that has been beautifully updated for the contemporary individual. Instead of a garden shed-like aesthetic, it boasts clean lines and ceiling to floor glass walls that really open up the space. As though blurring the lines between the structure and its natural surroundings, the lodging is perfect for country retreats.
Developed in collaboration with architectural design firm BLDG Workshop, the Bunkie by Evan Bare is slightly different from traditional architecture. Instead of being built bit by bit, it uses a CNC router to fashion the frame, which is made out of plywood and barn board. Essentially, it is a pre-fab structure.
